Veteran offensive tackle Winston Justice, who appeared in four games for the Broncos last season, was one of 11 players cut by Denver on Sunday.
The Broncos terminated/injured the contract of fifth-year linebacker Jamar Chaney, and they waived/injured rookie defensive end Chase Vaughn.
Second-year safety Charles Mitchell, first-year linebacker Jerrell Harris, first-year defensive tackle Will Pericak, first-year running back Jerodis Williams, first-year wide receiver Greg Wilson were waived. The Broncos also waived three rookies: running back Brennan Clay, wide receiver Greg Hardin and quarterback Bryn Renner.
Justice spent six years with the Philadelphia Eagles before making 12 starts for the Indianapolis Colts in 2012 and then moving to the Broncos in 2013. The 29-year-old University of Southern California product started 43 of his 63 career games.
Sunday's moves reduced Denver's roster to 77. Two more players must be removed by Tuesday afternoon.
